Concord July 27th 1872
Dear Miss Chandler, Our Postmaster has found Miss [Veath?] Circular- which I enclose. Mr Emerson and family have taken quarters for the present at the Manse. The house is to be repaired, I believe, forthwith. [page break] The carpenter advises adding a mansard roof giving another story of rooms. He thinks the necessary repairs may all be covered by the insurance, so the money loss will be incon- siderable. But we shall never sit again [underline] in the same rooms! [/underline] Mr Emersons'papers he tells me are all safe, as far as he has examined, and unharmed. Those saved by yourself and Louisa [page break] were nearly all in the Attic of much value most there having been destined to go to the rag-buyers. Ellen returned this morning. Only the most delightful memories abide of your too short visit which I hope you will repeat on your return from the mountains. Affectionately Yours A. Bronson Alcott
